I am very gratitude that I was given extra holiday today. With this extra holiday, I have the additional hour to spend time with my beloved family, to read my book, to update my blog and to continue with my DIY project.
I am telling myself not to give any excuses to delay any task that I have set for myself. I know that if I continue giving excuses and reason, I will not go anywhere. If I continue complaining about my life, I will not go anywhere as well.
Today, I was given additional hours to sleep. This is bad because I woke up at 11 am today. Not a good habit, but because I slept late yesterday as I was too into my DIY project. So the first thing I woke up I received a call from my tenant asking for urgent assistance as the residential penthouse they rent having power supply problem. Once I put down her call, It wakes up my mind and I thank god for not ignoring the call because if I do not pick up her call she will be having a bad holiday.
So the first thing when I woke up I received a call from my tenant asking for urgent assistance as the residential penthouse they are renting having power supply problem. Once I put down her call, It wakes up my mind and I thank god for not ignoring the call because if I do not pick up her call she will be having a bad holiday. So I try to call the team to get a technician on standby to assists on this matter. I was disappointed because I try to get the team but no one is cooperating. However, I tell myself, never give up, never be angry, they might be busy with something. Finally, after waiting and keep on trying, one colleague reply me but instead of assisting me, he is giving excuses. Saying that isn’t his job, should ask the common property management to assists. I feel is very bad for him to say that because it shows he is someone who is irresponsible and selfish. However, I tell myself, never be angry, never reply impolitely, so courteously, I requested for assistance again. Finally, another colleague comes in and assists on this matter. The matter did not go smooth, however, is under control now. I shall monitor if their problem occurs.
I try not to absorb the negative energy given by my colleague, I try not to talk bad about him, I tell myself to stay positive because I practising the concept in the book which I am still reading now, Happiness in Hard Times by Andrew Matthews. It says that problem will not fix if we continue criticising people. Every person who walks in your life is a teacher. Even if they drive you nuts, they teach you because they show you where your limits are. Just because people are your teachers doesn’t mean you have to like them or be like them.
So, I move on after the incident and continue reading my book, and update my blog. After this, I will continue my DIY project.
